Diagnostic tests : Flouroscien Angiography , Fundus Photography, Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), Eye Ultrasound: A-Scan and B-Scan, Visual Field Testing, Ophthalmic Lasers.
Fluorescein angiography is a specialized type of photographic eye test that is used to detect blood circulation problems, swelling, leaking, or abnormal blood vessels in the retina and choroid structures that are located in the back of your eyes. The test uses an injected dye and a special camera to take photos of vascular structures. It is used to diagnose certain eye conditions, including retinopathies and macular degeneration. Fluorescein angiography is a simple and short test that is performed in our office.
Fundus photography is a specialized medical imaging test used to take pictures of the structures located at the back of the eye, including the retina. It produces a series of photos that are helpful for diagnosing, documenting, and monitoring certain eye conditions. Fundus photography is a short painless procedure that is performed in our office.
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a new imaging technology that allows for measurement of the thickness of the retina and visualization of the different retinal layers. The retina is located at the back of your eye. OCT takes cross-sectional pictures of the retina. OCT is a fast non-contact and non-invasive procedure, which is used to diagnose certain eye conditions and diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration and macular puckers, macular edema, and macular holes.
Eye Ultrasound: A-Scan and B-Scan Ultrasonography
Ultrasound, also referred to as echography, uses high frequency sound waves to produce images of the internal eye structures. It is a helpful diagnostic tool if cataracts, blood, or other conditions prevent a doctor from viewing inside of your eye with traditional methods. A-scan and B-scan ultrasound are helpful for diagnosing retinal detachment, vitreous bleeding, tumors, inflammation, lesions in the eye socket bone, or foreign bodies in the eye. A-scan ultrasound is used to take measurements for artificial lenses for cataract surgery. This quick and painless procedure can be performed in our office.
Visual Field Testing
Visual field testing is used to detect visual field loss. Visual field loss may result from disorders or diseases of the eye, optic nerve, or brain. A common method of visual field testing involves having you focus at a point while flashes of light are displayed on a screen. You push a button whenever you see a flash of light and a computer maps a record of your responses. Your doctor can review the results to determine the extent of your visual field.
Treatment procedures : Opthalmic lasers , intravitreal injections, treatment of retinal detachments which are performed in clinic and major surgeries performed in operating rooms in the hospitals.
Lasers use short bursts of coherent light to weld the retina or ablate some retinal tissues. Originally used to prevent a detached retina, ophthalmic lasers now are used to stop bleeding, cut tiny openings, and evaporate small amounts of tissue. Laser therapy is usually a short in-office procedure.
Intravitreal Injections :
Injection of various medications into the back part of the eye to treat conditions like wet macular degeneration, complications due to diabetes, stokes in the eye are done in clinic.
Some of the retinal detachments can be treated with injection of gas bubble into the eye are done as in-office procedure.
